Salisbury City Council Candidates On Business Ordinance

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md. - The Salisbury City Council's new business disclosure ordinance was a hot button issue at Tuesday night's debate.

District 2Candidates, incumbent Debbie Campbell and Jacob Day discussed this law, which requires nearly any business entering a contract with the City to provide the Social Security Number and date of birth of anyone involved in the company.

Day argued "the state of Maryland form only applies to contracts over $100,000 is this [gestures] simple and doesn't request Social Security Numbers.  The [Wicomico] county council does the same thing.  It doesn't require Social Security Numbers."

Campbell responded "people want to know whether or not public officials are doing favors with their friends, and a lot of people have asked for this and it's a huge step toward transparency.  It is a one page form.  Fill it out.  If you don't want to fill it out, you don't have to do business with the city."

The business disclosure ordinance is set to take effect in late April.

Salisbury Mayoral and City Council elections are Tuesday, April 2nd.
